Following her success of Yours Truly going to number 1, her new album, My Everything has also done the same. She has become the first woman to debut at No. 1 with her first two albums since 2010.

My Everything has three singles that has reached the top ten including, “Problem”, “Break Free” and “Bang Bang”.

Ariana Grande Shares A Sweet Surprise Song With Her Fans: “Boyfriend Material” – Listen Now!

Ariana Grande is one of the sweetest girls we know and the singer is also super committed to her fans. With her new and latest hit single, “Problem,” already making it number 1 on iTunes, Ariana wanted to give back the love that her fans have been giving her. What did this star do? Ariana chose to share a sweet surprise by releasing a song that was done well before her second album was even in the making. The song also did not make Ariana’s debut album, Yours Truly. The song is called “Boyfriend Material.” Along with the audio video she shared, Ariana wrote:

“a little surprise for my loves as a thank you for all of your constant love, support and dedication. i know how much y’all love this song and how disappointed you were when it didn’t make it on to my first album so i knew i had to get it to you somehow someday. this song means a lot to me and holds such a special place in my heart as it was one of the first songs i did when i started working on ‘yours truly’ when i was like 17 ….. don’t worry… you’ll get more of these oldies too as time goes on! I’m working on it for you. love you all so much. you are everything. love you.”

“I feel so incredibly honored to be here tonight, singing alongside some of the most incredible female vocalists in the history of the world. I can’t believe that I’m here right now,” Ariana Grande when she took the stage at the White House on Thursday evening (March 6) as a part of their Women of Soul: In Performance at the White House concert in Washington, D.C., featuring a bill with the likes of Aretha Franklin, Patty LaBelle, Melissa Etheridge, Janelle Monáe, and The Voice winner Tessanne Chin.

“Mr. President, Mrs. Obama — what’s up? How are ya? Good to see ya. What’s good, it’s all good?” she greeted her hosts, to laughs from the crowd and a thumbs up from the First Lady herself, before continuing: “So thank you for having me. I’m seriously so excited. So without further ado, I’m going to sing a song by a woman who’s inspired me endlessly since I was a little girl… I’m gonna sing ‘I Have Nothing’ by Whitney Houston.”

Ariana brought the crowd to their feet with her amazing rendition of the Whitney classic, and later returned to sing her own song “Tattooed Heart” off her debut album Yours Truly as well, which earned her another standing ovation!
